Second half goals scored by Anthony Okpotu and Peter Eneji helped the Super Eagles to secure a crucial 2-0-win Monday night over the Black Stars of Ghana in the ongoing WAFU Cup of Nations.
After uninspiring draws against Mali and Guinea in their earlier group games, the Super Eagles home-based team were condemned to beat hosts and fierce rivals, Ghana in Monday night’s encounter.
It did not start so well for the Coach Salisu Yusuf tutored side as they fired blanks in the first half while Guinea were already a goal up in the other game against Mali.
Things, however, took shape as the Eagles scored two goals in the first 10 minutes of the second half.
Guniea and Mali ended their game 1-1 and both teams have thus crashed out while Nigeria will move into the semis with Ghana
